Summer landscape around Mårslet / 3

July 8, 2010

As you might know, we do not have many hills (local name: mountains!) here in Denmark with great views. One hill I like here is Jelshøj (posted earlier – in white!), but last year I passed another hill ( near Pederstrup) with a great view many km’s to Århus Bugt (Bay of Århus). And some days ago I went there again:

I went a little down the hill – and turned round. Then things looked like this!:

Moral: Always look at things from more than one angle!

I wish you a nice summer!

    How true is that! When I am hiking in one direction, I find I usually take photographs towards the front, unless I have been climbing a hill (or a mountain), and I *know* that there should be good views towards the back. I don’t do that nearly often enough, though.

    Yes, people tend to fixate on one direction when photographing. I make a point to do this when photographing landscapes like this as the light changes all the time and what’s behind me may turn into something I want in front of me. Like your second image, I find it much more compelling photograph of the “mountain”. 🙂

    Another reason for choosing the same way back. You get a completely different view.
    Your images really have the Danish summer in them. Good work Truels.

    Sooooo true! I even do this on a smaller scale. I get so wrapped up in one perspective and then for a goof I’ll snap a different angle and wouldn’t you know it, that ONE snap will turn out to be the best composition. Nice to see you landscape photogs deal with the same thing!

    Nice landscape photos. It is amazing how different something can look just by changing the perspective.

    How lovely ! A wide landscape, small winding country roads under a big blue sky. It looks like a warm Summer day there too.

    Hello 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog, I am happy to have found yours. I have looked up which point is the (natural) highest in Denmark and Wikipedia says is Møllehøj ( so I will be visiting there sometime soon!

    In the middle of a nice summer-break I’ve been “visiting” the digital world these days. Thanks for the comments to you all!
    Scott: Good inspiration (again!) to get in your posts “Two Photos for every Scene” ( ) and “Cloudscapes” ( ). And Carsten: I loved your series of pictures from the forest ( ).
